Open Carry and Free Speech Activism at the Manchester Airport

Free Manch - Fri, 2014-03-21 07:26 +0000

On the morning of March 20th, 2014, Joe “Liberty Carrots,” Nemi Jones, Riaz Kahan and I went to the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport to support the First and Second Amendments to the United States Constitution.  Joe was the creative star of this activism effort, stopped multiple times by airport security and threatened with arrest for handing out free copies of the monthly liberty newspaper FPPNews from Free Press Publications.

No airport security agents or police questioned the fact that Joe was open-carrying a rifle. They did, however, take great issue with our exercise of free speech and expression:

Critical Mass

Free Manch - Sat, 2014-03-15 01:04 +0000

If there’s one thing the liberty movement at large needs, it’s critical mass. Enough people in one place to actually accomplish something. The Free State Project was founded for precisely that purpose: to bring a critical mass of liberty-loving activists to New Hampshire so that we may have liberty in our lifetime.

Well, if you’ve been around Manchester lately, it’s beginning to look an awful lot like critical mass.

We’ve got a large activism center, the Quill, which is frequented at all hours of the day and night. We’ve got Area 23, an event and classroom space, in constant use throughout the week hosting events and classes on everything from ballroom dancing to home brewing to self-defense.

And don’t even get me started on the Bitcoin community here. Manchester’s Bitcoin meetup has outgrown the biggest establishments in town. The community is big enough, in fact, that I managed to live for a week off of only Bitcoin, while barely trying.

With the right idea and the right motivation, great things can happen. All we need is critical mass. In this area, Manchester is definitely leading the way.
